. in fact, jimmy has said obama regained everything he lost during the debate. what's your thought about that? it says these numbers are helping him. >> well, i think that's right. he's been saying on the campaign trail give me four more years and i'll really get this economy in gear and now he can point to something that justifies that message. the key is you already see voters in polls saying they think the economy is getting better. here this number advances that argument. it's a big boost. what you didn't hear romney say today is what he's been saying for years, that the unemployment rate is above 8% for 44 months. that talking point is done. it's over and it's going to be a little hard for him to make that economic case. >> let me say something about this, though. i looked back at the data four years ago, exactly four years ago -- i'm sorry, eight years ago. the democrats ran against the bush economy. do you know what the unemployment rate was in october of 2004? it was 5.5%. there's a big deference between a 55.5% -- >> igor, 7.8% unemployment ain't much to run on. you still

out a tweet regarding oil companies and tax breaks. basically during the debate you were not buying $49 billion in tax cuts claimed by the industry by president obama. it's been a theme on the left, that oil companies basically pay nothing in taxes. >> i don't know what the $4 billion is that tax subsidies for oil companies, because oil companies has the same tax structure as a manufacturing company in the united states. that's it. and i don't quite understand. we talk about oil companies making too much money. obama does. he consistently talks about that. he never mentions that apple is the largest company in the united states, larger than exxon. and i don't think there's anything wrong with apple either. i don't think there's anything wrong with any of the manufacturing or the oil and gas industry in the united states. i think they're trying to do the best job they can and doing a pretty damn good job. but i'm not one that believes they should be taxed more. >> boone, thank you. i know your cowboys and my hokies are both having rather disappointing seasons so we'll just leave it a

president presidential debate before we get two more presidential debates. one of the major issues is it that looming fiscal cliff. president obama challenged mitt romney on his plans for cutting the nation's debt. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real hit romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fell wloe on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> the president's vision is trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> president of the committee for responsible federal budget, director of the fiscal policy program, as well, and joins us now. have you heard anything -- have you heard enough of of a commitment from either side of the aisle that you thought might actually work? >> well, what we didn't hear was enough specifics. so i think the good news is that that debate, the discussion was

department is cooking these numbers to help president obama. people said that during the bush administration too. they accused the bush administration of doing that. it is just not true. doesn't happen that way. and i think people need to have a real debate over the argument and not a cartoon debate about somehow darkened conspiracies with the number. >> so the discussion will happen on the sunday shows whether or not the week was about the president's performance in the debate, or this economic data. which wins? which one is more important? >> you know, the debate was seen by tens of millions of people. i think that's important. i've said all along during the campaign, the jobless numbers have been hyped in their importance because people are living in this economy. they feel what's happening to their lives and their own prospects. this is good news for the president but doesn't change what voters already know about their own lives and the prospects for their kids to get ahead, the prospects for them to get jobs if they don't have jobs now. i wouldn't overexaggerate. its a psychological thi
